World, Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs, X-Men, Spider-Man, The Tick and Mighty Morphing Power Rangers. Each one of memorable
shows of the 90s. One of the most highly successful shows was the 90s X-Men.
The final adventures of the highly successful X-Men animated series are now finally here.
With this final volume, the entire series is now complete. We've waited long enough for this
whole series. We can now rejoice as the series is now completed.
This is the series' season four and five. X-Men debuted in 1992 on the Fox Kids network and ran all the way to 1997 with
five seasons and a total of 76 episodes. In this season, we'll witness Omega Red teaming with the X-Men,
an alien species consuming the planet, Storm being engaged to a king from another world, the origins of
Mr.Sinister and Wolverine teaming up with Captain America to battle the Red Skull. We'll even witness the final
episode with emotional results as Xavier leaves the X-Men to survive a fatal illness.
If you are either a fan of X-Men, Marvel, Fox Kids' cartoons, 80s/90s cartoons or just love all in general, then don't miss the final adventures of X-Men. If you loved volumes one two, three and four, then don't miss the final volume. It might just be
a great time to gather all volumes and witness the 90s all over again.
Also the Iron Man 90s animated series is being released along with X-Men. Let's just hope that someday, Disney will someday
released the 90s Spider-Man, along with Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, Silver Surfer and all other Marvel series. I would
love to have the 94 Spider-Man get a DVD release.Read more ›
Unfortunately in many ways the series went out with a whimper. The creators never anticipated a fifth season and the contract with the animation studio even expired resulting in the last few episodes being animated by a new studio and a drastic change in visual style. Some voice talent left as well, most notably Chris Potters who played Gambit and was replaced by Tony Daniels, making for a somewhat jarring presentation and conclusion. A lot of the episodes are "filler" and stand-alone stories. That doesn't mean they are bad, but the series always had a feeling of moving forward that is absent here.
Nevertheless, if you've come this far you must see it through! There are some good episodes here, even some classics, and the series did get a proper final episode which provides closure to the series. Among the standout episodes are the two part Phalanx episodes which provide at least an entertaining team-up between Beast, Magneto, and Sinister. I quite enjoy the episode "Deliverance" which gives us the back story of one of the villains of the series. "Old Soldiers" is another flash back episode, this one featuring Wolverine and depicting his team-up with the legendary Captain America to take on the Red Skull. "Bloodlines" brings back Nightcrawler and unveils his origins and relationship with Rogue and Creed. We also get a couple holdover episodes, "A Deal With the Devil" and "No Mutant is an Island," two episodes part of prior seasons that are presented here according to air date. "Fifth Horseman" raises the question of whether Apocalypse is truly defeated and brings the often forgotten X-Factor member Caliban to the party.Read more ›
